When I was adding my monitor on my laptop all I did was:

  1. Set up the monitor
  2. Plug it into the back of the laptop
  3. Switch Monitor on
  4. Right Click Desktop > Properties
  5. Display Tab
  6. And there should be a check box to check to exand onto another screen.

Sometimes when a PC gets stuck in hibernation mode, the only way to reset it is to remove the CMOS battery for 10 minutes and replacing it. It resembles a large watch battery and is usually located near the center of the motherboard.

I haveMy compaq presario CQ40 and my monitor screen got flicker always for past few days and more red horizantal lines @bottom of the screen, where i couldn't see the data,time,date... Plz help me...


This is usually a sign of either a bad LCD screen cable, a bad LCD screen, or a bad display adapter.
If you connect an external monitor & you get a picture without these red horizontal lines, then your display adapter is OK.
Diagnosing a bad LCD screen cable or a bad LCD screen requires that you disassemble the LCD screen panel, & swap them one at a time with a matching part. This way you can identify which part is causing the problem & replace it.

I suggest you start diagnosing by using an external monitor, if available.
A VGA monitor.

(It can be a VGA monitor that looks like a small TV, {CRT}, or an LCD flat screen that has a VGA cable attached.
More information on VGA connectors,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VGA_connector

Laptop off, and VGA monitor off, connect the VGA cable of the monitor to the Left side of the laptop.
(Rear top port)

Turn the monitor on, and then the laptop.
Do you see a display on the external monitor? (VGA monitor)

No?
Press, and hold down on the Fn key (Function Key), and tap once on the F4 key.

A) If BOTH the external monitor screen, and the laptop screen have the same pinkish display, the problem is the graphics chip. (More on graphics chip in a moment)

B) If just the laptop screen is pinkish, and the external monitor graphics are okay, the problem is inside the laptop display.

1) Could be a loose connection of the Display Panel Cable.
{The Display Panel Cable attaches to the motherboard, and the LCD screen in the laptop display}

2) Could be a bad Display Panel Cable.
Possible damage to the Display Panel Cable is the the laptop display was open.

Look for signs of damage to the sheath of the Display Panel cable.
However the damage may not be apparent. The Display Panel Cable could have been stretched.
(Laptop display open when dropped)
The tiny wires inside the Display Panel Cable could have become damaged.

Testing requires that the Display Panel Cable be removed.
A multimeter is used to check continuity of each wire.

{Multimeter function knob is set to Ohms. 1K or 10K if these settings are available.
The Positive probe lead (Red) is touched to a wire at one end of the Display Panel Cable.
The Negative probe lead (Black) is touched to the other end of the wire.

Analog multimeter needle swings up, you have continuity. Don't worry about the Ohm reading at this point. As long as the needle moves.

No movement? Have a helper gently move the Display Panel Cable around.
See if there is continuity shown, or is intermittently shown.
Indicates a break in the wire.
Solution is to replace the Display Panel Cable.

Same with a digital multimeter. No reading, or intermittent reading indicates a broken wire.

Display Cable Kit - HP Part Number 595196-001
I have seen several listings on the internet.

3) Could be a bad LCD screen.

Check the connections.
Check the display panel cable
If this checks out okay suspect the LCD screen.

My hp compaq Presario V6500 has been damaged and a computer dude in Bathurst NSW said we need a bulb replaced in the screen as it won't light up. Computer functions via TV. R there any local repairers for...


The monitor screen on your laptop is an LCD screen.

An LCD screen cannot produce enough light by itself. It needs an additional light source.
The additional light source is a Backlight.

A Backlight is a CCFL.
Cold Cathode Fluorescent Lamp.
Similar to Fluorescent lighting used in homes and businesses, but on a MUCH smaller scale.

LCD screens are a composite of layers. The layers are held together by a metal frame, much like a picture frame.
The Backlight is usually located on one side, accessed after removing one side of the metal frame.

As stated, a Backlight is a very small type of Fluorescent lamp, (Tube)
Very fragile, easily breakable, and not usually approached by one who has very little, or no experience in replacing.
More common the entire LCD screen is replaced, which includes the Backlight already installed.

A laptop also needs an Inverter to provide power, both for the LCD screen, and the Backlight.

90 percent of the time the fault is the Inverter.
I repeat, 90 percent of the time the fault is a bad Inverter.

An Inverter is cheaper than an LCD screen, and MUCH easier to replace than a Backlight.

Allow me to show you replacing an Inverter on an HP Pavilion dv6000 series laptop.
Granted, it isn't an HP Compaq Presario V6500 series, but the principles still apply the same,

http://www.insidemylaptop.com/remove-replace-lcd-screen-inverter-hp-pavilion-dv6000-laptop/

I can also provide a free link, to the Service Manual for an HP Compaq Presario V6500 laptop, direct from HP Support,

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/manualCategory?lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&lang=en&product=3369429&

In the list click on;
Compaq Presario V6500, V6600, and V6700 Notebook PCs-Maintenance and Service Guide

This is a PDF file.
Allow up to 30 seconds to see the first page, and an additional time may be needed to fully download.

In the Bookmarks menu on the left click on the + sign next to;
1) Removal and replacement procedures
2) Component and replacement procedures
3) Display assembly

And/or go directly to Page 61 to view the Inverter location.

One example of an Inverter for an HP Compaq Presario V6500,

Granted this is not what you asked for.
My premise is to teach, and hopefully save people money.
